Your mileage may vary... in accordance with the prophecy.
It is now early Saturday morning here, I just got home from going for coffee, and taking a friend shopping at Walmart.
During the worst, I would often go to sleep with the TV on, just to have some background noise to drown out my thoughts, and it was more comforting to have dreams influenced by the movies showing than what was rattling around inside my head.
It is amazing how much you can lose sight of when the shitstorm happens. When you think there is nobody else there, you are forgetting about the important one who may have become a bit of a stranger to you. Take this time to get to know blindsided again. You need never be truly alone. In the meantime, don't hesitate to go out, just to remind yourself that there are people out there, and that life continues. Most of the happy people out there have actually been through this at some point in their lives, on one side or the other.
Do not back up. Severe tire damage.
